A personal experience of global surgery: Treating obstetric injuries in rural Uganda.

Brief synopsis:

This talk will cover my personal experience as a trustee and volunteer for the Manchester-based charity, Birth-Aid.  The charity is comprised of volunteers including Nurses, Urogynaecologists and Colorectal Surgeons.  We have delivered surgical camps at Virika Hospital in Fort Portal, Western Uganda, working with the local team to treat women with childbirth injuries including vesico-vaginal fistulae, urogenital prolapse, rectovaginal fistulae and anal sphincter defects due to unrepaired fourth degree tears. 

Learning objectives:

  • To understand the impact of preventable obstetric injury in under-resourced countries
  • To understand the practical and ethical challenges and to appreciate the rewards of providing surgical care in an under-resourced setting
